Can I transfer the CDROM files to a Zip disk to install WIn95 on a Toshiba laptop?  Any likely problems?
Thanks

You can perform this.  Simply copy the "win95" directory from your CD-ROM to the ZIP disk.  The laptop will need to have a working operationg system on it to do this easily.  Run the setup from the ZIP disk as you would from the CD-ROM and voila!  I must warn you though, unless you have purchased an additional license, or this is only licensed on this particular machine, then it is highly illegal to copy the software.  Check you EULA that came with the Windows 95 CD-ROM.
